Subject: RE: BS: The Tea Party- New & Improved Thread...
You didn't offend me, brucie... I stated that Ike was the guy who sent the advisers... Hey, that's how stuff starts... And given the French defeat in '53 (was it) the US should have known that things might turn out poorly... Then to be implicated in the assassination of Diem we were going to be in for slobber-knocker...

Here's the part that I hate hearing... I mean, well meaning people saying that we should have stayed there and "gotten the job done"... This job was un-doable... Period...
